Concrete Recycling in the Sunshine State

Kleemann impact crusher MOBIREX MR 130 Zi EVO2 working in California

In the sunshine state of California, the MOBIREX MR 130 Zi EVO2 mobile impact crusher is processing recycled material at Ramco. The machine impresses with its flexibility and simple operation.

Beaumont, California: In Southern California is a dump location for Ramco, servicing Riverside and San Bernardino counties. The third-generation family-owned and operated leader in the construction materials industry specializes in recycle aggregate. The Ramco Beaumont disposal site has been recycling concrete and asphalt for nearly 50 years.

The customers range from general contractors, such as the state, the city and municipalities to individual homeowners and the movie industry. Ramco receives the concrete and asphalt from their customers, crushes it up and reloads the material back into the customer’s trucks at one of their processing locations, or contracts to crush at the customers site.

California presents a lot of opportunities to recycle concrete – the vast amount of infrastructure in the area provides a large need for recycled concrete materials. This is where the MOBIREX MR 130 Zi EVO2 impact crusher from Kleemann comes in, crushing roughly 18 inch down to 1 inch recycled concrete product.

Impact crusher MR 130 Zi EVO2 – powerful and flexible

This powerful impact crusher guarantees first-class product quality and achieves impressive throughputs. The machine is easy to transport and impresses with short setup times during commissioning and maintenance, as well as high machine availability. The flexibility of the Kleemann machine enables the operation to crush wherever necessary, allowing Ramco to crush the material directly where to customer require.

“Working with the Kleemann is fantastic. A lot of great features on it and we really love it. This is really good for us because we could go between our facilities and crush and even go crush for some of our customers. They have a pile that they need to have crushed up and it is too much to bring into one of our yards, so we will go over there to crush it on site for them”, says Dallas Jones, Vice President of Operations at Ramco.

MOBIREX MR 130 Zi EVO2 provides efficient drive and best material flow

The MOBIREX MR 130 Zi EVO2 has an innovative „diesel direct-drive” concept and ensures high performance with economical consumption at the same time. The system widths of the impact crusher open in the direction of the material flow for better utilisation and higher productivity. The innovative Continuous Feed System (CFS) controls the frequency of the vibrating feeder and the prescreen in relation to the crusher load. The CFS facilitates the operator‘s work because the machine automatically controls material flow, therefore ensuring optimum loading of the crusher.

“The Kleemann EVO2 impact crusher is wonderful. It’s extremely user-friendly, simple. The technology involved with it with all the sensors and the safety features are extremely handy,” says Darrel Burroughs, Operator at Ramco.

Control system SPECTIVE – for simple operation

Thanks to the innovative operating concept SPECTIVE, operation of the MOBIREX MR 130i EVO2 has become even easier. The machine is controlled via a 12" touch panel.

Clear operating instructions and pictograms actively support the user in finding just the right setting to take on any task quickly, precisely and very simply via touch screen. This way operating errors are avoided and occupational safety is improved. Important functions, such as the crusher gap adjustment, are easily executed, some even during operation of the machine.

“SPECTIVE is almost too easy. It doesn’t take much of an operator to run it,” Darrel Burroughs says with a smile.
